Ever wanted to smooch Harry Styles? Well, rejoice, because now you can.
The British-Irish boy band has joined the immortalized masses of Madame Tussauds. The wax figures of the chart-topping group’s five members — Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson — were launched at the world-famous waxworks museum, in London, England on Thursday.
Of course, some starry-eyed Directioners were on hand to greet the singers’ wax figurines. Giddy girls swooned over the teen heartthrobs’ strikingly-lifelike likenesses, cozying up to the quintet and smacking their lips on Styles’ cheeks.
Just like their real-life counterparts, the wax copycats will tour the globe as part of a traveling exhibit. After remaining on display at the London location until July 11, the figures will hop from New York (July 19 – Oct. 11) to Sydney (Oct. 24 – Jan. 28), with additional dates and locations still to be announced.
“I’m just kind of a bit overwhelmed,” Styles said last month of joining the wax museum’s comprehensive collection of famed figures. “We’ve been to Madame Tussauds and we’ve seen the kind of people who are in there. It’s crazy to think that we will be up there with them.”
“But it’s an amazing honor to be there,” Tomlinson added. “If you look at some of the names that are in there. We are very proud.”
